Hi, I wanted to know why half the animation related collection is at the Vanier Library when the school of animation, as a part of the Cinema School is downtown. It’s very hard to use any of them as quick reference when you have to request them every time you need to consult them and then have to wait a day or two to actually get the book.
Some books on animation are housed at the Vanier Library because they have been purchased to support courses and research in Communication Studies, a department that is on the Loyola campus. Many books in the Libraries’ collections have relevance to students on both campuses. It sounds like you are already familiar with the “Request” feature in the CLUES catalogue, which is the best way (other than the shuttle bus!) to get the library books you need when they are at the other campus.
Thank you for writing.
